Laser Hair Treatment - 10 Things You Must Know About Getting A Good Laser Hair Removal Service  

Laser hair removal is supposed to be a safe process, yet dubious claims and inappropriate equipment still lead to scams and injuries. Consumers themselves must know the ins and outs of laser hair removal to prevent themselves from getting cheated. The following points will aid you in making a proper decision to get yourself ready at the clinic.

1) The sensitivity of your skin. A skin can be too delicate to be damaged instead of getting treated. A technology called CoolGlide can treat all known skin types. Consult a professional to examine and discuss over your skin and infection issues prior to treatment.

2) The degree of discomfort. Do not believe in a "no-pain" process. All treatment are bound to make you uncomfortable. However, it's not anywhere near the whip-lash pain of waxing.

3) The possibility of regrowth. Laser hair removal cannot possibly stop hair growth, though it can reduce growth rate permanently after hair cells are killed. If a practitioner claims to eradicate hair growth completely, you should ask for testimonials and get their proof upfront; it's in their benefit to tell you their achievement.

4) The cost. Depending on the area size treated, it could amount from US$25 to US$250. You may compare the price ranges of several services to get a good gauge. Ask for outstanding reasons that could factor into the overall cost, particular the overheads for their equipment.

5) Aging equipment. Ask for the type of laser used, whether it is effective, how long the practitioners have used the equipment and if there are newer models. You have a right to know.

6) Multiple treatment plans. It's quite likely to return for several treatments within 2 weeks, and then another separate session if necessary within a year to eliminate regrowth, but asking you to come back regularly without the fullest and sincere explanation on your case is simply an indication of ineffectiveness. Beware of such tactics that forces you to pay a lump sum in full. You deserve a good laser treatment as it is.

7) Safety measures. Laser, if abused, can cause damaging effects. Check what precautions are taken, like applying a layer of protective cream over the skin or wearing eye goggles.

8) The practitioner. Who is actually doing the treatment? The experienced doctor or some 'assistant'? Check that the practitioner is trained, qualified and certified to carry out treatments.

9) Ask for a test treatment. This is a simple request which practitioners have no difficulties to fulfill. Cost will still be incurred, but your initial experience with laser hair removal gets you in the know of how a typical treatment works and in tune with the clinical environment.

10) Get written information. Get a written agreement on all obligations, commitment and breakdown of cost from the practitioner to ensure that he stays true to the standard of service provided.

Have you always been intrigued by the concept of laser hair removal but never thought you could afford it? Great news-this is no longer the case--low-cost laser hair removal is not only a current reality, but very likely available at a spa therapy center near you!

For the longest time, it seemed as if laser hair removal was something only the rich and famous could afford. Moreover, it seemed that the only places offering such services were pricey spas in New York and L.A. With the growing number of women demanding better solutions to their unwanted body and facial hair problems, however, the number of spas offering this treatment has grown exponentially, and there are now accredited facilities all across the U.S.

The removal of unwanted body and facial hair is such a pain-literally and figuratively-that it's about time you treat yourself to what millions of women across America have already discovered: the joy of laser hair removal. And now that it has become so affordable, this is an option for even the most modest of beauty budgets.

If you enjoy spending time at the beach or the local pool but don't want to attract horrified stares from onlookers, you've had little choice but to take matters into your own hands or pay for treatment after treatment, year after year, for salon waxes. Not to mention the numerous treatments you've had to pay for over the years to have your upper lip and brows waxed.

Whether you've been doing it at home or at the salon, it is time to stop feeding the cash cow and make a decision to permanently remove those unwanted hairs. It is so great that there is now a treatment available which is permanent and therefore an investment-an investment in your beauty and self-confidence which will last a lifetime.

Although the practice of laser hair removal has been around for a long time, it is only recently that it has become so widely available and affordable. This has been made possible by the high demand for such services and a growing number of schools training professional aestheticians to perform this service.

The best part of the fact that this is a process that has been around for so long is that it is now so advanced that concerns about its safety are a thing of the past. But really, the best part of this treatment being so readily available is that it is permanent and pain free! How many times have you cut yourself shaving, or had painful, itchy rashes appear after the use of waxes or creams? These are things you will never again have to endure once you have undergone laser hair removal therapy.

So many years have gone by in which "Pain is beauty" has been the motto to live by when it comes to hair removal.
